In the spring when flowers bloom,
Everything comes to life,
After a winter of gloom.
The colour of grassy fields
We ran on and laid on.
The shade of new sprung leaves,
Awaken after so long.

Heaven’s delicacy
Dessert that melts in my mouth,
and I reach for more, guilty.
The fur on my favourite teddy
I keep beside my pillows.
The initials you carved
On the bark of the willow.

When the sky is clear,
No clouds in sight,
And the breeze in my hair.
Waves slapping against the shore
Horizon extends to infinity.
Skipping stones and seagulls,
Keep us company.

Sunset on a summer day,
Right before the stars twinkle,
Signalling the end of play.
Your hand in mine,
Crunching autumn leaves,
Shades of changing seasons,
Just beneath our feet.

Misty air and morning dew.
Nowhere is the sun, I find
Grass stains on my shoes.
Daunting clouds loom,
High above our heads.
The coming storm,
The rain, we love, we dread.

The colour I can’t name,
Frustrating, aggravating,
So it’s you whom I blame.
Mesmerized, whenever
You look at me that way,
Rooted on the spot,
Wishing this is how we stay.

Intriguing and captivating,
Soft and intense,
Feels like I’m dreaming.
Colours mix and shine like
A multi-faceted gem,
Like all the sides of you,
I can’t help but think, Je t’aime.
